Description

On this week’s show, we help get you prepared to vote in Louisville’s Primary Election with an in-depth interview with Democrat Mayoral Candidate Shameka Parrish-Wright (https://shamekaparrishwright.com). Forward Radio does not endorse any particular candidates, but we do endorse an informed electorate and are happy to offer equal air time to all candidates.

Shameka Parrish-Wright is an organizer at heart – she works for The Bail Project and has been a community and voter empowerment organizer, a project manager and a campaign manager. She has volunteered with the Louisville Family Justice Advocates Project and serves on several community boards including Forward Radio’s Community Partner, the Sowers of Justice Network, UofL’s Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research, and the Homeless Coalition Continuum of Care board. Shameka is also co-chair of The Kentucky Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression. She holds a degree in Human Resources and all her past positions were directly connected to ending poverty and racism.
